I'm currently a junior in high school. My range of playing is various. I play lead in my schools jazz band, 1st when I play with our symphonic band, mainly first with our local college wind ensemble, and 1st/lead in marching band. I play everything from Haydn to Maynard Ferguson's 'Gonna Fly Now'.
I currently play on a Blessing XL-TR intermediate Bb trumpet, but I'm looking for something a bit more. I plan on majoring in trumpet performance in college, and then will look into doing a service band of some sort in the military. I don't really know what to look for that gives me what I want for all the types of playing I do, and where I can look at getting a good model trumpet for a reasonable price. My family isn't exactly well off, and I don't have a whole lot of finances to buy a trumpet with.
Suggestions, comments, advice?
